Guinness World Record Umbrella Dance Event Description

Posted on by Thomas Thorpe. This entry was posted in Media Inquiries. Bookmark the permalink.

In 2014, 1,200 UW faculty and staff came together to make history. Together, they set the Guinness World Record for the largest kettlebell class ever. In 2015, we are going to do it again, but this time we’re taking over beautiful Husky Stadium and showing the world we’re not afraid of a little rain.

Together we will twist, box step, and shake our way into history with the world’s largest umbrella dance. All participants will receive:

Free limited edition Whole U umbrella
Free t-shirt to commemorate breaking the record
Free snacks for recharging as you triumphantly leave the field
Opportunities to win prizes
There are only 2,000 spots available for this once in a lifetime event. Faculty, staff, and retirees received priority registration December 1 – 31. Now registration is open to students.

Family members at least 12 years of age are also welcome. Register your guests here.

Register now and we will email you a link to the video of the dance soon. We’ll be practicing all around UW in January and filming flash mobs. Sign up here:

Shake off your winter blues and dance your way into history with The Whole U! Special thanks to UW Medicine, UW Athletics, the UW Book Store, Coca Cola, and Whole Foods for sponsoring this Whole U event.
